record 1280x1024 on video assist

PostMon Jan 18, 2021 9:59 am

Hi
I am trying to connect a device that sends out 1280x1024 through an HDMI cable to my BM video assist. This output plays on regular TV/monitor, yet when I connect to either my video assist or an ATEM mini pro, nothing is seen, screen is just black. Anyone else had the same issue or is there a scaler that I can buy to convert it to something the BM devices would recognise. The device I am trying to record the output from is a hospital ultrasound product. I have no problem connecting to other devices that generate 1920x1080.
Thanks in advance

Add a Decimator MD-HX to fix this. As the Decimator will handle PC resolutions and convert them to Broadcast resolutions!
